Joel spent most of his business life in the construction industry as a manager. Due to the economic downturn, he became involved with RISE Adventures as a full time volunteer since inception in 2007. His love of working with persons with physical disabilities encouraged him to accept a full time position in 2012. He unanimously received the RISE Volunteer of the Year award in 2009 and 2010, and the Equipment Support of the Year award, 2011.
